More kid-friendly places like Full Moon?

I had lunch for the second time recently at Full Moon on Huron Ave in Cambridge. I really like the concept of this place. It's incredible child friendly (kids play area, lots of booster seats, even sippy cups on the kids menu) but it doesn't make adults eat kid-friendly food. I had a good (slightly chewy) asparagus risotto. Last time, I had a very good curried chicken salad. My friend had a smoked turkey, avocado and bacon sandwich on grilled sourdough bread. Sandwiches come with the option of mixed greens (good quality) or fries.

Desserts are substantial and approporately decadent. A warm chocolate pudding cake tasted slightly overcooked and came in a pool of chocolate sauce and was liberally topped with fresh whipped cream. Key Lime Pie was creamy and not too sweet.

And the best part is, we didn't have to worry about the chowpups bugging other diners, who mostly had their own little offpring in tow. I see from their sign there is another Full Moon in Arlington. Although, since going to Full Moon in Cambridge gives me an excuse to go to Formaggio Kitchen right down the street, I think I will have to keep going to the one in Cambridge. And it's very obvious that this place welcomes children (not just the kids play area but also written on the chalkboard), so diners who want a quiet meal in peace and calm can very easily see that this place isn't for them.

Does anyone know of any other places with good food that are particularly kid friendly?
